    Hey Tim- thanks for the kind comments- much appreciated. Few answers for you: you are correct symbols is the way to do it now. This ensures that things like symbol overrides are preserved and affords a format that is more flexible/scalable vs groups. For updating, make changes to the symbol, return to your document and with the item selected hit 'push changes' in the library panel. If you're still having any issues hit us up at and we'll get you taken care of. Thanks!

    Hey Tim- super interesting scenario you raise here. Right now libraries exist separately from working files relationships. This is purposeful to the extent that you may have multiple files that are benefitting from the same library. The assumption being that in many cases you wouldn't want to the two linked at the hip. That said, its an interesting concept you raise regarding associating a library to a given file to load/unload accordingly. Thx for the suggestion- will run it by the team.

    Hey Henrique- shoot me an email at stephen[at] I want to find out more context here. Any screenshots or screen recordings of what you want to accomplish here are super appreciated (thought not required) so I can understand the intent fully and up level this to the product team accordingly- THANKS!

    Sweet- thanks for the feedback Sumul! Agreed- nice to have a much more symbol-centric focus as well with better affordance for overrides to boot. Glad you stumbled upon those text style updates as well. :)

    Hey Matt- like where your head is at here. Going to add this to our feature request list for review. All of the above came from similar requests. :) I can see how this would be helpful in the given scenario so that you're not accidentally updating historical versions via an errant push on library where the same symbols are used. Hit me up at stephen[at] if you have more info here. I'd be interested in finding out how frequently you end up full-on opening past versions vs finder preview for quick look, etc. Rocking feedback!

    Hey DN friends, quick note: we just pushed some updates to Craft Library this morning highly focused on fixes and new features that came directly from community feedback (thank you!). These include:

    • Multi-symbol updates, including ability to send multiple symbols to Library for team-wide collaboration

    • Better support for symbol overrides when syncing library

    • Thumbnail hover previews to see important details (click and hold)

    • Background preview options for easier searching and scanning (great for being able to see lighter assets or ones with large amounts of transparency)

    • Color picker to more easily choose the colors you want to add to Library

    • Smarter search that enables sorting by type, color, category, and groups

    Anything else you want to see? Hit us up here or ping me directly stephen[at] Excited to continue sharing more with you on the Craft front in coming weeks. :)
